Location, Location, Location
As any realtor will tell you location is everything,
1 pound sugar
1 or 2 cans stale beer
3 mashed overripe banana
1 cup of molasses or syrup
1 cup of fruit juice
1 shot of rum
Mix all ingredients well and paint on trees, fence posts, rocks, or stumps--or simply soak a sponge in the mixture and hang from a tree-limb.
This is "Butterfly Pea". The Longwings Zebras are somewhat attracted to it but not much else.
A Hairstreak finds these Impatiens irresistible.
A Monarch rests or feeds on the Pagoda flower Clerodendrum paniculatum .
A Swallowtail caterpillar munches on Bronze Fennel. Each type of swallowtail caterpillar and chrysalis look different.
Looking much like a part of the plant, this is a swallowtail chrysalis.
